ARTIST BIO: Zion Thompson is a Grade 10 student at Princeton HS.
ART PROJECT: “Under the guidance of Art Teacher Matt Reed, students studied the work of Keith Haring, an artist known for using simple cartoons to communicate with the viewer. They were asked to draw something with a positive message or to address a social issue with their art. The students used red and white colored pencils on black paper, similar to some of Haring’s pieces. The project gave them a better understanding of how art can be used as a vehicle for personal or political expression.”
